Bugger! Wanted a new BX heater tap

Post by m_2975 » Sat May 20, 2006 10:18 am

Hi Guys,

I've had a very interesting day!

I was driving along the Red BX 19TRI (with a BX GTI engine) Estate today and all of a sudden there was all of this steam pouring out from under the bonnet.
The language was rather colourful to say the least. I pulled over, switched off and popped the bonnet like a flash!

The bloody heater tap fitting that goes through the bulkhead has snapped off and was p*ssing all over the manifold.

Botched it up with a metal pernament marker and my mums lipstick lid to close the pipes on the tap, refilled it with water and drove for an hour home.


I havee now fixed it with a copper pipe, joining the two hoses and am now in the search for a heater tap.

I know that the stupid things are plastic and hence I am praying that someone will have or know where to get a brand new one. I can no longer get them here in Australia.

I also need the metal heater pipe that runs across the back of rocker cover as it's busted and I cant get that either.



Your help would be great.

Don't like your chances as the UK seemed to run out of them before we did over here.
If this is any interest, drop me a PM and I'll see what I can do providing you're not in a hurry.

By the time you're old enough to know it all, you can't remember why you were learning.

If 2nd hand parts will do I have the bits from a 16v if that will help you out and I can get a price for postage - just a beer will do for the actual parts

Cheers
